clyph: Amos Quito: And it would still be asinine.

I'm pretty much at the head of the line when it comes to calling bullshiat on thugs with badges when they abuse their power, but in this case I'm (mostly) OK with this. A metal hook on a prosthetic arm IS a weapon, and I don't care if you're in jail for terrorism or jaywalking, it presents a danger to other prisoners and yourself.

They need to get him non-dangerous prosthetic arms in a very expeditious manner, and treat him with basic human dignity, but yeah until that happens allowing sharp metal hooks in the secure area is a Very Bad Idea.

Yeah, the hook-thing is kind of loco. But they're springing for "hands" to replace the hooksie.

You know, this dude has been in custody in Britain since 2004, and I have to wonder what the Brits did with this terrorizing Jeehadist while he was in their care? Did they disarm him? And why did their famous National Health system not lend him a hand? Get him off the hook, so to speak?

Anyway, the fact that they allow him use of his prosthetics during the DAY and confiscate them at NIGHT tells me that their reasons for doing so go beyond the "safety issues" that they claim.

Jeremy Schneider, the lawyer who represented Mustafa in court this past week, complained outside court that the daily removal of his client's arms is a problem.

"He has use of them for a certain part of the day but not long enough to allow him to function the way he should function," Schneider said. "As you can well imagine, he's not happy he's in a situation like this."

I say FARK him. Let him go without being able to wipe his ass until he gets his props back. If that is a "problem", then he should do shiat that will get him incarcerated on a daily basis.  Besides... why would he want to wipe his arse with a hook? I say he's getting the benefit of less opportunity to injure himself.

DammitIForgotMyLogin: Amos Quito: cretinbob: If he weren't a terror suspect, they'd do the same thing

And it would still be asinine.

You think it's a good idea to leave somebody with these in prison?

And that's why you never bend over to pick up the soap.

You can't let a guy in jail carry around steel hooks, even if he's in solitary he can still attack the guards with them. Superglue a plastic spoon onto to the end of each stump and call it done.
